Abstract : REMBASS is a system of unattended ground sensors with associated communications, processing and display equipment. The sensors can be hand, air or ballistically emplaced depending on the specific situation. Also, several different sensor technologies are available so the user can select the best sensor for his specific situation. The sensors will detect, classify and locate targets within their range. The information developed by the sensor is sent to a monitoring station through a transmission network composed of relays. The monitoring station contains processing and display equipment so the operator can readily interpret the information and send it elsewhere, if required. The system consists of many small parts which can be put together in many combinations to form a REMBASS system. This flexibility allows the user to adapt REMBASS to his specific mission requirements so that he can always gain maximum benefit from the system.
